FADE IN – INT. CLASSROOM
MRS. HFB, a high school teacher teaching Media Studies in a
small classroom in Dukhan English School. Her students:
GABRIELLA, an 18 year old who hates public speaking. GITANJALI,
another 18 year old who loves art. NISRINA, a 17 year old who
has a really strong opinion, and JOHNNY, another 17 year old who
is very energetic and optimistic.
The bell has rung and everyone enters the room. Each begins to
talk about deadlines in other subjects and being relieved that
they don’t have one for Media Studies.
Oh I have so many things due in this week!
(insert Nisrina noise)
Except media! I’ve got 99 problems but Media
ain’t one like what.
Everyone begins to sing along with the song and next enters MRS.
Morning everyone, YouTube’s been blocked. I
wonder which idiots were messing around with
I’m so done with art, I’m so glad there are
no deadlines for Media.
(MRS.HFB looks at GITANJALI in a mischievous way.)
Surprise! You guys will be making a
presentation for the Year 11’s- you need to
make a poster, a flyer, a postcard, a
leaflet brochure, and a short promotional
film! All due in- tomorrow.
(in different tones)
(in a panicky way)
Calm down. It’s not that hard.
Oh, well my night is sorted. Who needs sleep
Miss how are we supposed to make a short
film in 24 hours? (insert Nisrina noise) How
am I supposed to get actors? Miss do you
know how hard it is to get them to act
properly and they’re like “Just chill”-
“chill” this is my bloody coursework okay, I
Miss my deadline for art is tomorrow; please
don’t do this to me.
